2011 Hyundai Sonata: Material World

Ahh, look how nicely textured that seat fabric is.

Recent time spent in a certain top-selling midsize sedan (for an upcoming Edmunds road test) has left me with new appreciation for the thought and care that went into choosing the materials seen in our Sonata's cabin.

Things I like:

1: Seat fabric that looks and feels like it aspires to be more than that circa-1992 velour stuff seen in, ahem, certain competitors.

2: Nicely grained plastics.

3: That panel (the one surrounding the interior door handle -- dig that texture) on the door.
